Support of NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 GPU

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Gilles Vollant \(MVP\), Jan 9, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I've installed Windows 64 bits on a computer with a "NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti
    4200" graphics adapter.

    This is AGP 8x adapter, and Pnp ID is VEN_10DE&DEV_0281

    This is very strange, because this adapter is not supported natively b 64
    bits driver.

    I downloaded 81.98 forceware, both 32 and 64 bits

    32 bits nv4_disp.inf contain line for this adapter
    64 bits nv4_disp.inf don't contain line for this adapter

    this is strange, because :
    - 64 bits nv4_disp.inf support older and slower card (like Geforce 4 MX420
    or Geforce 4 MX 440)
    - if I force nvidia driver installation, the driver run well.
    - the file " 81.98_ForceWare_Release_Notes.pdf" , page 51, say that Geforce4
    Ti 4200 is supported by both 32 and 64 bits windows drivers

    Hi Giles, I had the same trouble and after emailing nVidia I found that the
    driver 81.95 works in the 64 bit O/S

  3. You might check:

    they succesfully pointed me to a driver that set my GO Card into full swing!
    I think they have everything supported.

  4. I compared 81.95, 81.98 and 82.12 INF file, and I don't found the Geforce 4
    Ti 4200 (or VEN_10DE&DEV_0281 )

    I compared several Windows 64 bits beta (several where public), and I found
    that Ti4200 was in older, but not in latest. It was in the autumn 2004 beta.
    I look at nv4_disp.in_ (which decompress on nv4_disp.inf)

    What methode/URL do you find to contact nvidia ?

    I suppose that driver run well on Geforce 4 Ti 4200, but Nvidia don"t take
    time to test this adapter very well (because this card is old and less
    produced than Geforce 4 MX 440, by example), so they don't officially
    support it.

    But NVidia say this card is supported in their PDF

    Clarify me on this: you're using the 32 bit driver package in the 64 bit XP
    Thank you.
